Later in life, Barack learned more about his father, the man he and his half sister Auma called the “old man,” from the stories he heard on his first trip to Kenya. Barack’s father was a Kenyan, of the Luo tribe, born near Lake Victoria in a village called Alego. His mother Akumu, his father’s second wife, left the household when Barack Sr. was nine, leaving her first two children to be raised by his father’s third wife, known to her extended family as Granny, and taking her third child, an infant, with her.

She told him he should follow his father’s example, that he had no choice because it was in his genes.  . ” She brought home books on the civil rights movement, recordings of Mahalia Jackson, and the speeches of Martin Luther King. She told Barack stories of the school­ children in the South and how, even though they had to read the books discarded by the white children, they became successful doctors and law­ yers. ”18 The uneasy political situation in Indonesia and near constant loneli­ ness and worry made Ann feel more and more apprehensive about life there.

His mother, who was visiting for Christmas as promised, seemed apprehensive of the pending visit and tried to reassure her son. She told him she had maintained a correspondence with his father and that he knew all about Barry’s life in Indonesia and in Hawaii. She told Barry his father had remarried and that Barry now had five brothers and a sister living in Kenya.
